I have mixed feelings about it, because on one hand, (usually) an artist didn't ask to be popular; they didn't ask for people to go by their examples. On the other, whether they want it or not, people are going to look up to them and it'd be nice if they did set a good example. So I understand both sides??? ;o; I see it like celebrities who do stuff people don't approve of, like smoking. I mean, parents shouldn't blame the celebrity because the parent didn't teach their kid that smoking is unhealthy, and, frankly, it's not a celebrity's responsibility to have to watch themselves every second of the day just because a kid might copy them...but like I said, kids are impressionable, and if a kid really loves a celebrity, they're gonna try to be like them, and it'd be nice if the celebrity wasn't smoking because it does kinda give a bad message.
OTL I rambled, but it's a double-edged sword to me :'D
